The prime suspect in the 2005 disappearance of high school student Natalee Holloway allegedly said he and his father “took care of things” in a newly discovered email that was sent shortly after the Alabama teen went missing, according to sources.

According to The Messenger, Joran van der Sloot emailed a person named “David G” two days after Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005.

In the email, van der Sloot allegedly wrote, “My dad got a boat two days later. We went for a ride and took care of things. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Holloway, who was 18 at the time, went missing during a senior class trip to Aruba in 2005.

Authorities have never found her body and Joran has never been charged, but officials believe he and two other men are the last people to see Holloway alive, Front Page Detectives reported.

According to investigators, they did explore van der Sloot’s allegations that he dumped her body at sea, but did not ascertain any definitive information, The Messenger reported.

A source told The Messenger, “It always seemed most likely that she was taken out on a boat. But the key is figuring out who would have taken him out there to do it. He and his father didn’t have a boat of their own.”

Van der Sloot has been serving a 28-year sentence in Peru for the 2010 murder of 21-year-old college student Stephany Flores, Front Page Detectives previously reported.

He was extradited from the South American country to Alabama in June to face federal charges accusing van der Sloot of trying to extort money from the Holloway family in 2010.

Officials said federal prosecutors reportedly obtained this new email, which was sent from the same Yahoo! Account that van der Sloot used to communicate with Holloway’s family in the extortion case, The Messenger reported.

Van der Sloot remains behind bars at the Shelby County Jail in Alabama.
